My favourite adventure with a novel so far this year I loved it to bits In many ways attempting to review this novel is like thinking back through an illusionist or an escape artist s performance of his trick and trying to work out exactly how he did it You re left a little baffled by the nature of the magic of the thing Ironically for a novel inspired by magicians there are few tricks in this novel It features no post modernist sleights of hand with regards structure or voice It is straightforward storytelling at its most magical and engrossing the plot freuently twisting with fresh surges of adrenalin Its mesmerising power is all in the vitality and hightide imaginative reach of its story and the compelling moving humanity of its two main characters Josef Kavalier and his American cousin Sam Clay The premise Josef Kavalier s family pay for him to emigrate from Prague to New York as the Nazis rise to power As often was the case for Jewish families in those days the Nazi authorities kept the money but withheld the necessary papers at the last minute Eighteen year old Joe with the aid of his Houdini like escape artist teacher has to smuggle himself out of occupied Prague in a coffin with Prague s legendary Golem He eventually makes it to Brooklyn and shares a room with his cousin Sam Clay The way Sam initially looks after Joe and introduces him to his world and the way their bond liberates Sam is beautifully portrayed Sam too is a great fan of Houdini and together they invent The Escapist a superhero whose attraction to Joe is that he can vicariously use him to wage a one man war on the Nazis Joe s ambition now is to pay for his family to escape the Nazis Escape is always the name of the game in this novel Sam has a secret he is trying to escape from There s barely a single female character in this novel for 200 pages And then Rosa Saks arrives The comic book theme of Kavalier Clay has put me off reading this for years I remember a paperback copy was knocking about in my first flat in Florence and despite the difficulty of getting hold of novels in English I still never felt inclined to read it Comic books have no relevance to my life than darts or bingo I ve never been anywhere near a film which features a costumed hero in a mask and lurid tights Therefore I was far from sure I would enjoy this novel Kavalier Clay like so many other novels attempts to get at the uintessence of the American dream and it does a decent job chronicling so many of the characteristics of American cultural and political life between 1939 and the 1950s But the real triumph of this novel is its dramatization of intimate worlds of friendship of sexual love of parenting of private obsessions and yearnings and of the creative process the relationship between artist and inspiration the process and the exuberance of artistic creation is one of its most exciting achievements We also see the relationship between artist and the corporate world and between artist and censorship too The friendship between Joe and Sam is a joy to read from start to finish one of the most moving accounts of synergistic liberating companionship I ve ever read Some of Joe s actions are uestionable but because Sammy always forgives him so do we Sammy is a kind of moral touchstone in this novel And as his surname suggests he s also the novel s Golem the catalyst for all the novel s magic It s also him who expresses our own scepticism about comic books as high art though in the end Chabon makes a great case for the important cultural significance of the comic book This is one of those novels when you sense that half the trick of writing a rich compelling novel is for the author to feel a consuming love for his characters and get to the heart of them Chabon clearly loves his characters and this love is highly contagious If you haven t already read it give it a try It s heartwarming and exciting and magical and utterly engrossing

I m a fan of Michael Chabon even though he carries a man purseJoe Kavalier is a young artist who had also trained to be a magician and escape artist in Prague When the Nazis invade in 1939 Joe is able to escape to America with the plan that he ll find a way to get the rest of his family out In New York he meets his cousin Sam Clay Sam is an artist of limited talent who has been doing drawings for the ads of a novelty toy company but the recent boom of superhero comics thanks to the newly created Superman has inspired him to try and break into that budding industryWhen Sam sees Joe s artistic talent they form a partnership and Sam talks the owner of the novelty company into launching a comic line featuring masked men Joe and Sam create a group of comic characters including The Escapist a magician and escape artist who is also endowed with super strength by an ancient secret society to help free the oppressed Sam s story telling instincts and Joe s art uickly make The Escapist one of the most popular comics on the marketHowever Joe s inability to get his family out of Europe due to anti Semitic German bureaucracy and US government red tape continually leaves him frustrated and angry Falling in love only makes him feel guiltier for his happiness and success Meanwhile Sam buries himself in work to avoid admitting that he s a homosexual until a relationship with a radio actor forces him to confront his natureChabon s a comic geek and he really understands the medium at a DNA level This is obviously his ode to the Golden Age of comics when the industry was born My favorite part of the book is where Joe and Sam are trying to come up with a new hero and their conversation about what will work and what won t is a great deconstruction of what makes for a good superhero The following weekend they spend with a group of artists cooking up several heroes to fill out an entire comic book made me feel the energy and creativity that seemed to be present in air of the New York comic scene in those daysThe book also highlights the flaws of funny books of the time too Chabon makes it clear that a lot of the stuff that came out was schlock thrown together cheaply and uickly and the stories about creators getting ripped off by publishers are legion We also get into how comics were thought of back then Despite their large sales they were shunned and mocked by the general public and seen as lurid trash for children Joe and Sam are proud of their creations but they re also embarrassed to be writing about men in tights Joe often feels that he s wasting his time with war looming and his family trapped in Europe but it s giving him the money he needs to try and get them out so he takes out his frustration by having The Escapist beating the Nazis in the pages of the comic bookThe first half of the book is the portion that I really love There s a point where Sam Joe attend the premiere of Citizen Kane and its clever story structure and inventive camera angles inspire them to push their own work into a adult direction It s also a nice nod to the way that comics eventually started breaking the old nine panel per page format and became cinematic To me that s the high water mark of the book because for one brief shining moment the two men see what a comic book could become and temporarily manage to push their own self imposed limitations aside to create something new Unfortunately like any Golden Age it doesn t lastJoe can t let go of his desire for the kind of justice that a character like The Escapist deals out regularly because he s looking for the wrong kind of satisfaction Sam wants so badly to be normal and respected that he ends up living a lie and trying to be anything but what he is a gay writer of pulp fictionChabon has crafted a great look at a bygone era and meshed it with a pretty good story about a couple of likeable characters so embroiled in their own private triumphs and tragedies that they don t realize that they re among the pioneers of a new art form even as they create it
